The students met with NJCUL Marketing and Communications Specialist Natalie Spangenberg for a brief orientation before going to the gym to make financial decisions at the lifestyle booths with their customized budget worksheets.

Volunteers from sponsoring credit unions, including Members 1st of NJ FCU, Bay Atlantic FCU, and Thunderbolt Area FCU; Jersey Shore FCU; the League; and school staff, helped students make life choices, filling out their budget worksheets, and then sat down with financial counselors to go over the experience.
